MediaCorp OOH Media Urban Wheels Challenge - 10 to 11th October 2015

It was not a typical weekend at Gangsa – although in a couple of ways, it was. Guys in loose MTB jerseys, kitted out with full-face helmets and knee guards, sporting the latest and boingy-iest long-travel downhill bikes? Check. Girls in pretty much the same thing? Err… check. Stairs and wooden banks instead of packed dirt and berms? Check.

Urm, so, the last two aren’t quite Gangsa. It is instead, the inaugural Urban Wheels Challenge, an event organised by MediaCorp’s OOH Media.

Touted as Singapore’s first cycling competition set with a challenging course designed to mimic outdoor terrain in an urban setting, the event was part of M...

Buy & Sell Pre-Loved Bikes Safely

One of the best things about riding bikes is buying one. But not many of us can afford new bikes, with the prices of most desirable new bikes starting from 4 figures.

So the next best thing is a pre-loved bike – and that’s what Togoparts is best known for – finding used bikes or parts, at palatable prices. But buying used bikes usually comes with with some caveats – namely these below:

#1.       Fake goods

With the rise of China’s manufacturing prowess comes their amazing ability to create knockoffs of branded goods. This applies equally to bike parts, and bike frames. So, how do you spot a fake good?

Generally, if the price...

Vittoria Tyres with Graphene Technology

Every racing cyclist wants faster, grippier, and more puncture resistant tyres. These are known parameters that affect your speed and time, and ultimately going faster without more effort is the best way to go. So if you can afford to splash out in excess of a few grand for a carbon race bike, you'll want to make the best of it.

Upgrading to newer and better parts constantly has become a favourite pastime of local cyclists. But one thing that's sometimes overlooked in favour of better carbon grade, deeper rims, aero profiles and weight savings is the tyres of your bicycle. Ever realised that the only thing between your expensive carbon bi...

Lumos Bags Review

A backpack that has solar panels is not all that novel an idea. After all, it's been done before. Almost everyone carries a bag, but you won't see many of them deliberately going into the sun as they head from place to place. Air-conditioning, underground link ways and sheltered bridges are all being installed at rapid rates to please the community.

What's the use of a solar powered bag then, if you're going to stay sweat-free and keep your Chanel or Dior Eau de Parfum on you to impress your clients? Well Lumos' solar backpack for the cyclist makes a whole lot more sense. Even if you're not a cyclist, I think you'll quickly see why.

Selev Helmets by ReCycle Bike Seeker

Selev Helmets by ReCycle Bike Seeker

There are tonnes of cycling helmets out there in the market, with almost just as many brands and manufacturers out there too. Some of them are designed very well, with a lot of time and money spent on the research and design of that particular helmet, and at the other end of the quality scale, there are also the suspiciously cheap knock offs and counterfeits that would actually give you more worries rather than peace of mind that will make you wonder if the helmet would truly provide adequate protection for your cranium in the event of an unfortunate crash.
Selev is an Italian brand that is actually one...

Louis Garneau bicycles - Go clean and green

Singapore is working towards becoming a bike-friendly city. If you happen to pass by places such as Punggol Park or East Coast Park, you will see many cyclists, even some with their own group jerseys. Joining a cycling group is also a way to widen your circle of friends and to share the passion of cycling with others.

Cycling is an environmentally-friendly mode of transport that is becoming increasingly popular in Singapore, especially for short trips - as part of the daily commute to work, to the MRT station or bus interchange, or for intra-town travel.

Besides being economical and convenient, cycling also offers many health benefits, b...
